1. Great piece of design.
Unfortunately, only Mazda took it into commercial production in their fantastic RX line of sportscars. Highly responsive, great power output, superb simplicity, and a name that makes the schoolboy in everyone giggle like an idiot.

4. Suzuki actually built a motorcycle with a Wankel
in the mid 70s. Didn't last long, but always wanted to ride one.
